Just want to thank the crew at Hotel Rio. The rooms are simple but what else do you need. Clean and comfortable are all we need. Front desk was awesome but Moses, Ricardo and Aldo were the BEST!!! They made us feel like family and we will return. The cafe was delicious some of the best food in the world... More

Very clean hotel. This place has everything we needed, the staff were excellent. We had a simple room, but the common area/ restaurant is a bit fancier. Great location, close to the beach, markets and action. We would stay here again.

This is a traditional Mexican hotel in the heart of PV. It is being renovation and I stayed in a superior room which had already been updated. It was small but was very clean and the tv and wifi worked well. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked great once we figured out how to work it. There... More

Just got back and can just say it was a great time, hotel is right in the middle of everywhere you want to be. Steps from Old Town, Los Muertos beach,The Malecon, The Church, shopping , Market is just across the street, and just everything that makes an authentic Puerto Vallarta holiday. Was a bit concerned about traffic noise but... More

Located a short walking distance to the beach, shops and buses to explore PV! The hotel was comfortable and clean with staff who are friendly and always greet you with a smile and help you whether it's with directions or something else! Had a great stay in PV. Can't wait to return! Amo PV!

From the moment we arrived we loved everything about our stay. Our room was cozy, Mexican themed with colourful tiles and traditional style paintwork on the walls. Our comfy king sized bed was a welcomed luxury! The staff were always friendly and helpful. The best thing for us was the price, very reasonable for travelling on a budget. We did... More

Bordering the centro, malecon and old town everything is within few steps of the Hotel Rio. The coexist Cafe which ispart of the hotel offers an excellent menu and fabulous music. Lastly the staff handled... More

We spent several nights at the Hotel Rio Malecon on our first visit to Puerto Vallarta - and walked everywhere! It is a very convenient location to the Bay, restaurants (both tourist-y and those tucked in neighborhoods), shopping, convenience stores, transportation, and more. The rooms are clean, the staff are quite friendly, and I would recommend this to anyone wanting... More

I spent 4 nights at the Hotel Rio Malecon in Puerto Vallarta recently. A wonderful stay in the center of the Old Town, close to the famous Vallarta Beaches and an easy stroll to the boardwalk as well as the water taxis and tour groups that take you all sorts of places. My room had a plasma TV with a... More
